Crowns & Bridges
Unlike dentures, these are fixed prosthetic devices used when teeth are missing.
A dental crown fits over the remaining part of a tooth to help strengthen it and make it look whole again. Crowns may be needed for teeth which are damaged or decayed, following root canal treatment or to help support a dental bridge, as well as to improve the appearance, shape or alignment of a tooth.
First, we will prepare your tooth, numbing both the tooth and surrounding area with local aesthetic. We will then take an impression of the area around your tooth, as well as the matching shade to your surrounding teeth, to ensure that your custom-made crown is indistinguishable. You will be fitted with a temporary one for a couple of weeks before receiving the permanent crown, which will be bonded in place with special dental cement.
Bridges (false teeth) fill a gap between teeth in a permanent and natural-looking way and are normally recommended if you’re missing more than one tooth or need a more extensive restoration than a crown. They are usually made of a hard-wearing precious metal base, such as gold, covered with tooth-coloured porcelain. The two neighbouring teeth will usually need to have crowns fixed on to them, before being connected by the bridge.

"Very happy to have this practice as my new dentist. Friendly and professional staff (Dentist, Hygienist and Receptionist) who explain things well and it's very clean and comfortable surgery.
Extended opening hours are very handy for fitting around work. Just make sure you are very punctual or they might make you re-book (which they were very apologetic for and is totally understandable)."Read more testmonials

"I visited the surgery after experiencing violent pains with my wisdom tooth. I was able to obtain a same day emergency appointment. I arrived at the surgery and sat down for about 30 seconds before I was seen by a dentist who made me feel very comfortable and explained exactly what they were going to check for. After a brief analysis they concluded that I had an infection at my wisdom tooth. All in all it was a good visit, would highly recommend to friends and family."Read more testmonials
